Did you know the Olympics have a theme song? Here are
the best Olympic songs
from over the years.
There are a lot of
compelling Olympic storylines this year
, like the
biathlete who gave up her spot on the Olympic team to her twin sister
And try not to cry while watching this year's
"Thank You, Mom" commercial
This year, figure skating will be more like gymnastics. For the first time, there will be a team competition, pitting country against country for what promises to be a dramatic battle. And there has already been some drama. At the national championships, American officials
decided to put Ashley Wagner, 22, on the Team USA
despite her fourth-place finish and disastrous performance. That ended the Olympic dreams of Mirai Nagasu, 20, who had secured the bronze medal at the competition. It was a rare move, as a third-place finish traditionally secures a ticket to the Games.
It's been 20 years since the Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding saga.
Here are throwback figure skating GIFs
to remind you of that time and get you in the Olympic spirit. Triple-toe loops are really GIF-able!
